Wild Echinacea Angustifolia from South Dakota
Answered by: Richard Alan Miller
Question from: Cynthia Charger
Posted on: October 14, 2007

We have just moved to a beautiful prairie in South Dakota. On our land are thousands of Echinacea angustifolia. I would like to know if this is a good market at this time for wild crafted angustifolia and how I would actually sell it. Thank you so much for your answer.

Your crop is probably worth a great deal of money. And, as a broker, I may be able to help sell it, if harvested correctly. South Dakota is considered a prime region for wild Echinaceas. Why not send me a sample of the root, and let’s see what you have got?

Also, so may want to consider domesticating this resource. How to do that can be found at
